Eclectic artist, Dario Agrimi works in the field of contemporary art with artworks of conceptual character. He ranges from painting to installation, also preferring the photographic, sculptural and video field. His latest experiments are the result of a maniacal search for perfection, which sets a hyperrealism that amplifies emotions and reduces the distance between reality and fiction.
